's one of the topics i discussed with supreme court justice stephen breyer, when he stopped by to discuss his new book, "making our democracy work." i love the title of this new book. "making our democracy work." that's not only the title of the book, but your mission. and you believe for that to happen, people need to understand our institutions and be engaged with them. >> yes. >> how do they do it? >> the first step is to know what it is we do. how your legislature works. how your governor works. how your mayors work. >> you also said something of a mystery. that we built up in our tradition, the norm that when the supreme court decides something, the public tends to follow. >> there's a history in this country, of bad events and marvelous events. and over time, it's led to a general acceptance of the court, of having the last word on most constitutional issues, even when they are wrong. >> that was really tested on the idea. when you were sitting on bush v. gore, the 2000 election, you wrote at the time, you were against it. it was a self-inflicted wound that hurt the court. you also

my call. good morning, stephen. the president has a lot of work to do. the previous caller stating that both parties are not responsible is ridiculous, they're both responsible and the mirror each other in so many ways. i can give you an example of the changes for health care with obama putting through that initiative. a doctor that excised something from a doctor's office for $182, the same person when to the hospital for medication because the pharmacy would not touch it, $500, two separate charges. his eyebrows went up and he said thank you for that information. the parties that are supposed to work together, that is their job. they are supposed to represent all of the people. in terms of compromise, bob dylan says that everyone loves compromise. we started to shed jobs in the 1970's starting with manufacturing. i have one word of advice for the president, it really bothers me when i hear politicians say they are the best. no one is the best. we can be the best sometimes. i cannot handle it, it bothers me a lot and i wish that he would stop saying that. as far as the money, they
a morning. stephen kaplan is a lawyer -- steven kaplan is a lawyer, but he specializes in financial mortgage matters. welcome and thanks for being here. guest: thank you, susan. host: the description of one current mortgage disclosure is that they are a quagmire. would you agree? guest: i think that is probably an appropriate description. i think the different types of requirements and up being very confusing and cumbersome and a voluminous amount of paper. voluminous amount of paper. we have disclosures that allow people to shop for different products, so they can take the product that they got from lender "a" and compare it to render "b." other disclosures are informational, like be careful, your house is on the line. it is very difficult for the consumer to understand. host: and the big headline from the "wall street journal" this morning, the "housing is staying stuck." guest: probably the largest issue right now from a housing sales perspective other than qualifying for mortgage loans are the underwriting guidelines that are being applied by lenders. they're very strict. a lot of people
theoretically won. >> it's so funny, you a great story in the piece about stephen colbert telling his wife their friend, jon stewart had been chosen to host "the daily show." >> she said, wait a minute, he was the quiet guy in the corner with the beard, not the funny one. what's he doing getting the show? stewart is a very smart guy. there's no magic formula as he says. he's worked hard at his humor, getting booed off stage in all the standard sort of start-up things. he lucked into a niche in some ways, "the daily show" existed before he took over as house. it wasn't nearly as political, as topical. he knew he wanted to give it some weight. but some things that have happened in the real world, many of them not funny, have given him openings. and the polarization of media, cable channels, fox obviously the biggest culprit, has given stewart a middle to both poke fun at and sort of represent in some ways. it's going to be interesting, with this rally he talked about last night, he seeing it as a piece of theater, as another goof on glenn beck and everybody else. whether he can do that and n
